Science fiction (abbreviated SF or sci-fi with varying punctuation and case) is a broad genre of fiction that often involves sociological and technical speculations based on current or future science or technology.

Subject: Good collection of stories to drive by
This collection was very enjoyable. It really made the miles go by fast while driving.

The readers are all did a good job. There are technical problems on 'Martian V. F. W.' and 'Pygmalion's Spectacles.' Those two are complete and they play, but they are very crisp. There is no low or mid range making the quality very shrill.

Subject: Good effort but awkward
The readers are amateurs, so these recordings are hard to listen to.

Subject: Fun collection
Although none of the pieces are profound, they are all worth listening to, and all readers do a great job. Thanks!

This is a nice collection, well read by various readers. If you like this one check out Vol. 2 which I think is even better.
